Elementz is a youth hip hop arts organization in Over-the-Rhine that provides a safe and creative space for youth, teens, and young adults. For seventeen years, Elementz has been providing its members with programs that involve the elements of hip hop. These programs are hip hop dance, music production Studio “E”, recording in Beats & Rhymes, DJing, and Visual Arts. Elementz not only provides a creative space, but it provides a performance space as well.
It is an urban oasis of hope and a catalyst of change for Cincinnati’s inner-city youth. What began as a way to get kids off the streets in 2001 has transformed into a thriving Urban Arts Center that fosters talent, ignites potential and inspires possibilities. Elementz helps build dreams and brighter futures.
Also, their vision for Cincinnati’s inner-city youth is “to be a catalyst of transformation for children in the urban core. This enables them to find their artistic voice, engage in community, learn to give back, and carve a path for a successful future”.
